Virtual "cheat sheet". :wink:

From NPR's page:

WNYC's "The Ring and I: The Passion, The Myth, The Mania" asks what many of those unfamiliar with Wagner's Ring Cycle might wonder: "What's the big deal?" This journey, intended for both devoted fans and newcomers alike, visits a diverse cast of characters who offer answers to the complex question.

I heard two of the three segments (one hour each) when they were broadcast about a year ago, and as a not-particularly opera-oriented person, I enjoyed it thoroughly and learned a lot. :)
